Berardo Art Deco Museum Collection

The Berardo Art Deco Museum, or BMAD, opened on April 23, 2021, making it Lisbon’s newest museum.

The Berardo Art deco collection is located in the early 18th-century palatial summer home of the Marquis de Abrantes, in the Alcântara neighborhood. The collection of art deco and art nouveau pieces are displayed in what would have been the daily setting of the period in a nobleman’s home.

The collection includes more than 300 pieces of furniture glassware, ironwork, silverware, ceramics, and lamps. It is considered to be one of the best Art Deco and Art Nouveau collections in the world.

The collection was assembled over thirty years by mining tycoon Joe Berardo.

Featured artists include:

  • Jacques Émile Ruhlmann
  • Alfred Portanueve
  • Jean-Michel Frank
  • Jacques Adnet
  • René Lalique
  • Jules Leleu
